(((We're happy to announce we have a place, date and time for the "Leadville Live" Q&A episode of this show. Go to to get your free ticket!)))

In this episode, Hottie and Fatty dig into whether and when to wear hydration packs in a race (and which does best in which parts of the course), as well as analyze the relative merits of different brands of hydration packs, bottles, and cages. Roxy, our nutrition guru, talks about how to bounce back when things go wrong on race day, and our mechanic has valuable tips for maintaining your brakes.
